Discover Japan’s World Heritage Sites (12 Days / 11 Nights)

Written By explorient

This unforgettable tour takes you on a time journey to retrace Japan’s remarkable civilization, catching a glimpse of its revered UNESCO World Heritage Sites across seven alluring cities in 12 days. Your introduction to Japan begins by touching down Tokyo to experience the contrasts between the old and the new, the traditional and modern. Continue on to Hakone, where the majestic Mt. Fuji warmly welcomes the visitor with its lush countryside, tranquil lakes and invigorating onsens.

Then, journey to the heart of Japanese civilization to Takayama, a charming castle town of wooden homes and cobbled alleyways nestled in the Japan Alps, offering the visitor a rare glimpse into Japan’s Shogunate period including a visit to Shirakawa-go. Next up is Kanazawa, a castle town steeped in Shogunate Era and home to the famous Kenrokuen Garden and charming Higashi Chaya District. We’ll also enjoya fun-filled Japanese culinary lesson here.

We conclude the trip in the ancient capital of Kyoto, a heritage town rich in history depicting the Japan of Old. Tour the city’s revered architectural masterpieces, including the Golden Pavilion, Kiyomizu Temple and Fushimi Inari Shrine, plus a memorable visit to Nara, yet another former capital of Japan and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From Tokyo’s glamorous Ginza District to Shirakawa-go’s rustic wooden villages, Mt. Fuji’s breathtaking panorama to Hakone’s soothing hot-springs, Kyoto’s Imperial Castles to Nara’s inspiring temples and shrines — this is a journey that goes beyond the imagination.
